No dice. I tried your suggested command, except that I changed /dev/fd0
to /dev/fd1, since I need the 5.25-inch drive, not the 3.5-inch drive,
but other than that it was just as you suggested. No mount, no error
message. The only output from dmesg is the original warning message:
FAT: utf8 is not a recommended IO charset for FAT filesystems, filesystem will be case sensitive!
which also comes out on the terminal, since I am issuing the command
from an active Linux virtual console, not a terminal emulation window
